BMW Plans to Sell 600,000 Electric Cars by 2020
BMW has already started the ball rolling with its noble target of 600,000 “i car” sales by 2020. The target is intended to help satisfy CO2 emission regulations. Bill Jacobs BMW is among the dealerships that will contribute to this effort by putting more focus on eco-friendly vehicles. BMW’s electric cars are among the most safe and environmentally-friendly in the world. If more car shoppers opt for these types of cars, the ripple effect on the environment can be tremendous.
Many animals, plants and even people are being affected by the toxic fuel exhaust from gas-powered vehicles which is why BMW is dedicated to selling these new electric vehicles. According to autonews.com, BMW commits itself to manufacturing 100,000 units of the electric cars every year for the US market. While there are automotive analysts who believe this is overly ambitious of the automotive company, we here at Bill Jacobs BMW believe it is possible.
The United States is currently one of the biggest markets for BMW products. Sharing the company’s plans with the public recently was BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer. He says as an internal goal, BMW aims to cut emissions of its vehicles sold in Europe by 105 grams per kilometer by 2020. He notes that the European Union sets CO2 emission goals for all vehicles in the industry but this depends on the weight of the vehicle and the company.
One automotive writer stated the sales of the BMW i3 in the United States are quite impressive. BMW predicts that the sale of its “i” vehicles will rapidly increase since more people are opting for cheaper, safer and more reliable ways to travel.
